Drivetrain FAQS

Atlas Transmission would like to welcome you to our website's page dedicated to questions we get from our customers in the greater Sumter ~ Columbia area about the repair and service of drivetrains.

Will a driveshaft vibrate my vehicle?

The driveshaft on front-wheel vehicles rotates at the speed of the wheels. A bent or damaged driveshaft can result in vehicle vibration. Driveshaft’s on rear-wheel vehilces the driveshaft will rotate two and a half to four times the speed of the wheels. Due to the relatively large size of the rear-wheel drive shafts and high speed, vibration is significantly increased. Atlas Transmission tells our customers that we service in the Sumter ~ Columbia area that other considerations that many result in vibration can include tiny dents, worn universal-joints, and missing balance weights. When a technician at Atlas Transmission has a customer indicate that vibration is experienced when accelerating or decelerating, the driveshaft is inspected as the most probable cause.

Will Atlas Transmission repair a rear-wheel drive shaft?

Atlas Transmission will often repair drive shafts for our customers in the Sumter ~ Columbia area. A drive shaft can be straightened or if bent too badly the tube can be replaced. Our technicians may also balance the drive shaft as well as replacing the U-joints.
